Good News: Obama Already Stimulated New Employment for Deserving (Knee-Clubbing) American

By Debbie Schlussel
Who says Barack Obama isn’t stimulating new jobs for Americans?
While hundreds of thousands of Americans have lost their jobs since Obama took office, there’s good news. He’s stimulated employment for at least one American.
And she credits her new opportunities directly to the new President.

In HBO’s latest Real Sports episode, debuting Tuesday, disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding responds to then-candidate Barack Obama saying he wouldn’t “do a Tonya Harding” on opponents. She says it helped her get work – she does paid appearances – “because people forget who Tonya Harding is.”


Ms. Harding is charging $10 per autograph, these days. In this economy, who the heck is paying her ten bucks for her signature? Who the heck paid that when times were better?
And, hey, she’s also a commentator on Tru TV’s Dumbest Criminals shows. Hmmm . . . .
Now, if only Barack Obama could create jobs for the millions of Americans who didn’t hire someone to club the kneecaps of their competition. And if only he could do it as economically (versus the gazillion dollar do-nothing stimulus bill) as he did with the former champion ice skater. You see, you can create new jobs without massive spending.
Well, two jobs. As we know, Obama also stimulated new employment for the Tonya Harding of politics, too.

We had figured from all the media hype that this guy would know how to be a commanding figure.
More like a small guy who is out of his league as the POTUS.

I guess Tonya Hardig is symbolic. She is a criminal & gets rewarded. Just like the other criminals who are benefiting from the ‘stimulus’ bill. Crooked lenders, crooked borrowers, crooked welfare cheats, crooked unemployment cheats, crooked tax cheats, etc. Dumbing down morals as well as dumbing down intellect.

So, I see Tonya “Knee-capper” Harding is at it again; please go away, just disappear — a total disgrace to herself, to figure skating, to the nation as a whole.
The last figure skater who actually did it right (compete like you’ve nothing to lose [and everything to win]), the way it’s supposed to be done, was Sarah Hughes, Salt Lake, 2002 — nothing before or since has had that kind of power of performance in the figure skating realm.
